IAM is the first platform dedicated to women in visual arts, fashion and design from Africa and its Diaspora. IAM is a bilingual (English/French) cross-media platform, encompassing both an editorial website accessible on www.iam-africa.com, a high quality print magazine published twice a year and a program of events. IAM explores local artistic African scenes; portrays artists, designers, curators and art professionals from Africa and its Diaspora and brings together an audience of contemporary women – and men – who believe in the future of Africa and are inspired by those strong personalities. IAM’s overall content is conceived and produced by a team of art, fashion and design connoisseurs across Africa, Europe and North America.
Regularly, IAM’s website publishes proprietary written content. External contributors who wish to train their writing skills or be visible to an audience composed of individuals with a strong interest in art, fashion and design from Africa, do join our online team. Online contributors are: students, young art professionals, art critics, art historian, or journalists. They are fluent in either French or English (or both) and have a good understanding of the Contemporary Art, Fashion or Design scenes from Africa.
The online team is under the responsibility of the Platform Director. Together they plan and decide the topics to be written about and the article formats (interviews, portrait, reviews etc….). Online contributors are invited to write a minimum of two articles per month. Examples of articles can be found on:http://www.iam-africa.com/
Articles published on IAM’s website are not compensated. However, IAM does ensure access to artists, art professionals, and events when needed. Articles published on IAM benefit from an increasing visibility often leading to interesting opportunities for the authors.
